A DD is a feature, not an award, no one is "worthy" of a feature. And you shouldn't post rude comments on other people's stuff :/ it doesnt make you look good or cool or whatever the hell you were trying to achieve by putting this image down
Actually yeah, you can be "worthy" of a feature, and I don't like seeing stupid shit being featured. And I'm not sorry posting a criticism on a photo. You call it "rude", but you might be a tad bit sensitive.
Me? sensitive. No. I just don't like to see people like you saying negative things on other people's work. I mean, it's not like they asked for the feature, it's not their fault if their image is not "worth it" in YOUR eyes. You wouldn't like to see someone dis one of your artworks right? Then why would you go and criticize someone else's work? No one likes a jerk. If you dont like something, then leave it alone. This photo receiving a DD does not mean you harm.
Like I said, I wasn't "dissing" I was giving my honest opinion, which I'll agree came off a little harsh. But why should I feel bad for that? Criticism makes an artist better, I do it to myself all the time. And if I come off as a "jerk" it's not my problem, I'm not going to change the way I am so somebody I don't even know likes me. And I'm not the kind of person where if I don't like something I'll "leave it alone" I'm going to voice my opinion if people like it or not. And lastly, I never blamed the guy for his stuff being featured, I have nothing against him.
I find it funny when people get DD's for things they consider simple, or "Just an ID" but it does deserve it, thats a beautiful animal and even though I know cheetahs are one of the most tame of the big cats still cant believe how calm you are around it. Do you work with him a lot?
Cheetahs are actually more docile than other large cats. In the wild they generally only go after small prey and would run from larger animals (humans included). The reason for this is that not only are they smaller than a tiger or a mountain lion, their skeletal structure isn't as sturdy since they're built to be streamlined for running, not big for beating up large prey. That means that larger prey could actually injure the cheetah, perhaps fatally.
So, when they spend a long time with people, cheetahs tend not to display a lot of aggression.
